Paging Dr. Cooper Freedman, you’re wanted for another hit Shonda Rhimes ABC series. That’s right folks, Paul Adelstein is set to recur on the drama ‘Scandal’ starring Kerry Washington and Tony Goldwyn, TVLine exclusively revealed yesterday.
So who will Adelstein be playing? Your guess is as good as ours aka we don’t know! His character is being kept under wraps and top secret like most of the storylines and hidden agendas on the show. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that he has better luck than his real-wife Liza Weil (‘Bunheads’ and ‘Gilmore Girls’), who starred as White House intern Amanda Tanner in Season 1.
This isn’t the first time Adelstein has worked with Rhimes. For six seasons, he starred as Cooper on the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ spin-off ‘Private Practice.’ Adelstein fans also saw him strut his stuff as Paul Kellerman on ‘Prison Break.’ It will be nice to see a familiar face back on the small screen.
In other recent ‘Scandal’ news, ‘Friends’ actress Lisa Kudrow has also scored a recurring role. Like Adelstein, the details on her role are being kept quiet, but it’s rumored she will be portraying a politician.
Hit the comments and let us know who you think Adelstein will or should portray on ‘Scandal.’ The ABC series returns to the small screen for its third season on Thursday, Oct. 3.
